I had a short trip to douala (2 nights) and I chose somatel for it's location. The hotel staff was pleasant. though my French was a little rusty, i got directions to places I needed to visit.The room was clean,there was wifi (decent),clean bathroom, free shuttle to and from the airport. the swimming pool looked nice(didn't swim since it rained throughout my visit!),buffet breakfast was nice.
The downside: i found the hotel design leading to the dinning room a bit strange.by stairs or elevator, it's not straightforward. the gym room hardly functions(though there exist some gym equipment).
The hotel is pleasant and it's appearance doesn't quite relay the message of a hotel with a decent budget.
